PLEASE HELP time is wasting away as I approach Christmas.
For those of you who are familiar with armslist here is what what is around me.
If you have time to kill please help me out. (New guns from sites are welcome too)
Thanks again everyone
Mossberg 500, 590 Maverick 88 or Remington 870 are all good reliable guns available in a variety of styles with a ton of aftermarket parts available for customizing. Mossberg, and probably Remington, makes a combo package with an 18" HD barrel as well as a longer 24" or more field barrel that would be suitable for skeet. Swapping the barrels takes all of 5 minutes and requires no special skills or tools, just twist of the magazine cap and pop off the barrel.
